Reviewed December 4, 2012

We stayed at the Park Hotel for 3 nights. It was a wonderfull experience!

The lobby is located on the 25th floor. The floors below are offices. Personnel was very nice and spoke English perfectly. We thought the view from the lobby was great, but when we got to our Corner Twin Room on the 33rd floor we where blown away! The view of the Tokyo Skyline is absolutely breathtaking.

It offers great views of the city and its inhabitants. Shinbashi Station is directly below the hotel, lots of subways pass through as well as lots of Shinkansen trains.

The roomsize is average, not to big, not to small. The room was clean and came with all sorts of amenities.

We booked well in advance so the roomprice was affordable enough.

The location of the hotel is maybe not as vibrant as one would expect (mainly officebuildings) but Ginza and Shinbashi are within walking distance. The fismarket is a 20 min walk (I think it will be a bit shorter once the roadwork is completed) Also the subway offers great connections to other parts of the city. The unmanned train-station Shiodome is right next to the hotel and connects to Shinbashi Station and more important the artificial island Odaiba with lots of shopping malls, movie theaters and Gundam shop!

The hotelbar was expensive, 10 euro for a beer is ridiculous....

The Park Hotel is attractively priced, serves a very good breakfast buffet, and offers some terrific views over Tokyo. The staff is friendly and helpful Unfortunately, the hotel entrances are hidden in a maze of underpasses, overpasses, up and down escalators, and tunnels. Even after three nights there we found it hard to locate the way back from Shinbashi Sation, and it didn't help that there are two other Park Hotels in the vicinity plus a Shiodome Tower that is not the Shiodome Media Tower. There is no surrounding neighborhood, just a confluence of expressways. (Despite some claims, it is not really near the Ginza). On a cold night, you think twice before going out again, and the hotel's restaurants are expensive.

Room Tip: Get a room facing Tokyo Bay.

Thank you for your comments on the Park Hotel Tokyo.
We are a little disappointed with the problems you encountered coming to and from Shimbashi Station as we believe the hotel is extremely well located. Located above one metro station, with a monorail station ten seconds from the third floor exit, five minutes walk from Shimbashi Station via the raised pedestrian deck, ten minutes walk to the start of the main avenue in Ginza, ten minutes walk to the famed Tsukiji Fish Market, and with uninterrupted views of the Tokyo Tower, Mount Fuji and beyond, the location is, we believe, not a bad one.
There are many, many guests who venture out in the evenings to eat at any of the hundreds of restaurants to choose from and we would encourage our guests to get a map from reception, some directions, and to go out exploring!

First trip to Tokyo and loved it. Stayed with family for 4 nights at the Park Hotel (2 adults, 2 girls). Good value and size by Tokyo standards with a location that can't be beat.

Top 10 things that we liked about the Park Hotel Tokyo:
-Views galore: Located on the top floors of the Shiodome media tower, hotel views couldn't get better. Tokyo tower and Mt Fuji on one side of the hotel and Tokyo bay on the other. Unbeatable, especially Tokyo tower at night. With its iconic red color, it beats the Eiffel tower IMHO.
-Location, location, location: Ginza is a 5 minute walk. Shiodome and the very connected JR Shimbashi Station are steps away. This station can take you anywhere in Tokyo. Tsukiji fish market is a hop, skip and jump away.
-Our corner room: A little bigger for our family, and with Tokyo Tower bidding us sweet dreams every night, a veritable treat for the eyes.
-Staff: Japan is known for its service, and this hotel definitely did not disappoint. We were met everywhere with smiles and a can-do attitude from the check in staff, the bellhops, to the Japanese and English speaking concierge staff. English speaking Chris was a bit off his element during our trip (we were a bit disappointed given the previous rave reviews) but the Japanese staff was incredible.
-Cleanliness: Spotless. Everywhere.
-Art: Whimsical and interesting. Even the photojournalistic exhibit of the adjoining Kyodo News office on the lower floor was a nice welcome back home.
-Vending machine that changes foreign currency in the lobby. Enough said.
-Airport bus from Narita goes directly to the hotel. Take the direct bus and don't try taking the trains from the airport unless you know the area very well. The tunnels and walkways will take some getting used to.
-The 7-11 convenience store located in the basement of the hotel. I can't tell you how may trips a day we made to get rice balls, green tea kitkat, ice coffee, water, japanese beer and more. Extremely reasonable prices in expensive Tokyo.
-Finally, the Ghibli clock show right outside the hotel on the NTV building is an amazing experience. OK, not technically part of the hotel, but so close that we linked it to our stay. This clock was designed by the famous Japanese animator Miyazaki and there are several showings a day. We sometimes timed out trips to and from the hotel to see this free clock show. Incredible.

Things that the hotel could work on:
-More comfortable beds. We slept well, but could be a tad more comfortable.
-Ice machines. Could be more robust. We had to research several floors before we were able to find our favorite (one with a reliable supply of ice).
-WiFi: Weak signal in the rooms. Free in the lobby but experience would be vastly improved with room access (especially considering this is the "media" tower).
-Gym: Should be free (rather than cost $) especially since it is just a shoebox of a room. But on the bright side, this forced me to run outdoors and explore the interesting areas off the beaten path.
-Room furniture: Just showing a little wear now with scratches and such.

All in all, we would come back to the Park Hotel as a family. Also cool that Tablet Hotels features this hotel as well.

Room Tip: Corner room with views of Tokyo Tower.

Thank you for your extremely positive review of the hotel. The Top 10 list has been extremely well received and distributed to all the departments of the hotel. On a personal note I am a disappointed that I was a "little off my element" during your stay. It is not a criticism I have ever been leveled before and I have thought hard as to why this may have been the case. It is certainly something I will do my upmost never to be told again!
The charge for the gym is a minimal one but unfortunately it is necessary in helping with the upkeep and servicing of the machines.
The ice machines are serviced regularly but if there is ever a problem with getting ice from any of them we will be happy to bring ice up to the rooms in a large ice pale.

Stayed here in Nov for 3 nights on a holiday. Hotel is in a convenient location – next to Shiodome Station, minutes from Shimbashi station and an easy 10 minute walk to Ginza. Great view from the reception of Mount Fuji and Tokyo tower. Rooms are compact but functional. Bathrooms equally aren’t massive but seemed to be filled with the biggest toilet westerners have ever seen ! (fully equipped with music, heated seat and a spray arm!) Rooms were kept clean and staff on reception were great – really helpful and no issues with the language barrier. Free 24 hour access to the internet in their business area (in reception). Very efficient with the booking and organising or the Airport Limousine (would recommend this to get to/from Narita – cheaper and easier that train/taxi) Hotel is also really easy to find – you’ll soon get your bearings.

Very nice hotel located very close to Shinbashi station, which is a great location to move around Tokyo. Shinbashi is accessible directly by Train from Haneda Airport (no change needed) and very easily connected to Narita via train.
To access the hotel from the train stations:
- if you arrive through NR Shinbashi station or Shinbashi: follow first Shiodome and then exit 7
- if you arrive through Shiodome station: follow exit 7
From exit 7, you should go up two floors to access the ground floor and then take the elevator... Hotel lobby is at the 25th floor.

Big room (for Japanese standards) and a very good ration quality/price.
Very clean hotel

Positive points:
- a change machine so that you can convert your euros or dollars into yens... which is very convinient as only a few ATM in Japan accept foreign credit cards.
- Free wiFi available
- great view from the hotel.

Couldnt fault this hotel. But be aware that very close by is another hotel called Royal Park Hotel....totally separate from the one we stayed at. Dont get confused but we couldnt work out the reasoning as to why they would name 2 places so near to each other with similar names. Anyway the Park Hotel reception desk is on the 25th floor of the Shiodome Tower and then the residential floors are above. Cant think of anything we didnt like about it.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the bay and the other side looked out to Mt Fuji. Both good.
